One of my favorite cartoon characters would have to be T-Bone from the cartoon series Swat Kats. I mean who doesn’t like a funny, loyal pilot who trys to save the city even after being screwed by Feral?
I found this cubeecraft a little more difficult than most. I had to watch the entire series just to make sure I get the flight suit and accessories right (and you know I totally loved it 😀 )
Believe it or not the ears on this character were the hardest. I would draw the ears on this cubee and find that they just didn’t look right. I quickly realized these ears were gonna have to pop out from the side of T-Bone’s head. With no template for these, I had to get creative and form one by getting a close up of how the ears appear on T-bone. After several attempts I think I found an awesome set of cat ears.
To attach the ears to the cubee:
To the left and right of T-Bones face there is a black Oval. In that Oval there are three white lines that must be cut to create a hole that the ear tabs can slide through. The bottom tab will curve up into the ear to give it a more 3D look. Be very careful when cutting out the ears, they are very delicate. Once the ear is cut out fold along the black line. Slide the tabs into the holes and it will form an ear.
The face of T-bone also pops out to give him that cat feel. Before you fold the cubeecraft’s head cut along the while lines around the cheeks. When you fold the head do not fold the cheeks so that they stick out. See picture below for a visual.
The attach the tail, there is a white line on the back of the cubee that has to be cut for the tabs of the tail to slide into. Both tabs must slide into the hole created. When you cut out the tail be very careful. It must stay connected at the tip where you would fold it in half.
